"Dreams are renewable. No matter what our age or condition, there are still untapped possibilities within us and new beauty waiting to be born." ~Dale Turner
Wanting to express joy and excitement about all the upcoming new or improved projects and passions, I decided to put my thoughts into a blog post, because that is something I'm working on getting better at doing.
As some already know, over the summer I was in "Tonya Davidson's - Artful Success" program. I have made several changes and forward progress since then. You may not see all of those changes in tangible form yet, but they are on the way - I have made them mentally.
Currently I am working on changing my business name from Lookie-Lookie to Juanita Burton Designs. This change brings necessary modifications to all my social media sites, websites and Etsy. I've been working very hard instituting all the changes as well as working on custom orders.
It feels exhilarating though! With my background/education in Graphic Design, I thoroughly enjoy and get excited by design projects. It may sound silly, but I wish I had more time to just play with it. Hah! Here is a sneak peak at one of the new website design ideas:
In a couple weeks, I am excited to share an article and photos of a custom piece that will be published in Pasticcio Quartz. PQ is a gorgeous mixed-media publication/collaboration by Sarah Fishburn and Angela Cartwright. I have adored their work for many years; long before having an opportunity to be included in the November publication release. Here is a sneak peak of the piece displayed in the article:
So many exciting things to do and be grateful for. I am still working on my studio remodel and organization while working on jewelry - that is taking longer than I expected. Anxiously waiting to receive my copy of Holly Gage's "The Art of Metal Clay" calendar where my "Unrequited Love" ring is included with so many talented artists.
Also getting Halloween costumes ready for an event this Saturday, plus mailing out surprise Halloween packages to my grandsons. Plenty of orders to keep me busy for a while... but most exciting is I have been journaling a ton of ideas for new work in my design journal ... and I can't wait to get started on it. I LOVE helping women feel Romantic and Mysterious with specially made, handcrafted, one of a kind jewelry. I am very passionate about it!
What are you feeling passionate about in your life right now?
Much Love. xoxo
